The Fortune Cooker

The Fortune Cooker® technology:

The Fortune Cooker® is a family sized solar power plant which makes it possible to generate and store heat and electricity. People in the sunbelt of the world (35ºN to 35ºS) can cook with this device. The water-boiling test show good results compared to the well-known cast iron stove from India. Mirrors reflect solar radiation to the downside of a pot which makes it possible to use different cooking techniques. It is also possible to cook with more than one pot. A photovoltaic (PV) solarpanel attached to the front is used for electricity generation. A battery inside the device stores the electricity. Combining The Fortune Cooke® with WiFi technology could provide people in rural areas with a communication network.
